Gorgeous black and white plate wall in gray dining room

I think Kris of Driven by Decor and I are long lost plate wall, Boston Terrier loving sisters.

Kris lives in a 60 year old Connecticut Cape Cod and describes her style as: “I’m a lover of neutrals and use them to decorate in a timeless style with a collected-over-time feel.”
